Sun Fabulous Sun

So since moving up here to Spruce grove we have had all of a week of sun so far!  Without snow!  It was not Seasonal... or so we were told.  Anyway we are doing everything to enjoy the nice weather outside.  We went out to the Dollar store and purchased a kite... The boys were so excited to try out the kite.  On the morning that Brad was not at work we got the big kids off  school and we went out to fly the kite.

The boys had a great time trying to get it to fly... Brad got mad and gave up after about 5 min.  But those boys persevered.... And never did get it to fly.  Haha Stupid Dollar store kites... Well those were Brads words.

They pulled out the old Golf clubs after the kite feasco... They did much better at that... They are both Future Happy Gilmores... they hold the club like there hockey stick!

The Big kids are slowly getting adjusted to school.  It has been really hard on them. Paris Teacher is i bit of a bag... Wow that's so rude but totally true.  Paris just cannot mesh with her,  and that really is saying something cause Paris can mesh with most teachers.  But this one kinda had it out for Paris (or the school she came from)  from the start.  So finally Brad went in and talked to the teacher and its pretty much a mutual ignoring... she ignores Paris and Paris keeps to herself.  Which makes me sad but she will be out of that school in just over a month,  and then things will be better.

Brody had a bit of a hard adjustment in his school but we have figured it out and we just need to get through the next month and next year will be better!!  I know it! 

But meanwhile at home its been good.  We are happy up here.  Glad we are close to family, and equally as happy to be able to go home (to magrath) once a month for pictures, but that gives the kids a chance to play and have fun down there!

The Big Move!

The time finally came to make out move!  It was a long hard 6 months that i won't complain about because i had tonnes of help from my mom!  I can't even say i was truly a single mom for 6 months cause i had my Mom as back up!  But I'm sure glad to live with the hubbs again.... I missed him and it's so much fun being able to see him everyday!  I'm sure I won't take him for granted for at least 2 weeks!

We purchased a house in Spruce Grove.  It takes Brad 25min to get into work, which if 15min less then to his lethbridge work.  He is loving the job and is excited for the new opportunity's a new office allows him.  Well if i was not use to having him gone already i would be worried about him Leaving Thursday... The office is sending him to Vancouver to a course.  Which he is really excited to do and that means more extra income for us.

Anyway back to the house.  we are slowly getting unpacked... and wondering where we got all this crap from... I did sell tonnes and tonnes on the Trusty Buy and Sell,  But there is still plenty to find a place for.   I'm excited to start decorating this house.  We have to wait till we get everything squared away with the other house and then Brad said we have to get all unpacked... we are 25% done..... And I'm ready to be all done!  Yikkes!

Here are a few pictures of the house
This is our quite little Cresent....
